Thanks to Dan Retzinger and Seeking Adventures for taking us out and for all the craziness and fun from everyone. Had a couple around 70 pounds, a couple at 50 pounds and the rest ... well our arms were tired so we just kept the 30 to 40 pounders! Picture just shows 8 of the 18 fish we caught between nine of us!
